I can answer from the perspective of a mom with significant nutritional deficiencies, and two kids with very different facial structures (my daughter is a clone of DH, my son isn't--maybe a little like me in the jawline, maybe my SIL and BIL, it's hard to be sure, but clearly not DH).
My kids have very different manifestations of their nutritional deficiencies--and Price said these deficiencies are mostly fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, and K2--it is rare, very rare, for people to actually consume anywhere near as much of these things as Price discussed. Good nutrition, the Price definition, barely happens in the US, which is why I think we have such a hard time recognizing it. We're mostly looking at versions of less-than-adequate.
I put up pics in the "metal look" page that whoMe linked to.
My daughter (1st child)--pinched middle third of the face, posterior TT, high, arched palate, and irregularly spaced teeth.
My son (I was far more nutritionally depleted for him than for my daughter)--very symmetric, evenly spaced teeth, even the crowding of his bottom jaw, which is where he mostly shows his deficiencies, he has quite the heart-shaped face--a little pinched in the middle third of the face, but mostly the heart-shaped jawline, anterior and posterior TTs, high, arched palate.
I believe that if/when I ever get my nutrition right, my kids won't have tongue ties, they won't have the heart-shaped jaw thing, and their nostrils will be wider. But I don't know exactly how they'll look--if you pop over to whoMe's link, you'll see that my kids' basic face shapes are quite different, and I don't think that is at all problematic, that part is genetic. And how each of them manifest the nutritional deficiencies is genetic (depending on who they mostly take after). So if I can correct this with diet and getting rid of the high toxic load and cranial-sacral, then they'll look very different from each other, but both will look the healthiest they can.
